We track moon cycles for astrological and mystical purposes but did you know the moon in your chart represents your emotions, instincts, and how you feel? Depending on your chart, it may even resonate with you more than your sun sign. The moon is also deeply symbolic of your relationship with your mother, what nurtures you and fits into your comfort zone. Your moon sign doesn’t show to others at first glance like the rising sign. It’s more on display for friends, family, and the people you know.


Nurturing Your Moon Sign

When your moon feels fulfilled, it can help shift anxiety, stress, and you can feel an overwhelming sense of calm. Especially during a time where staying home often is the norm, creating a sanctuary in your home specific to your moon can keep your vibration high. Practicing self-care tailored for your moon sign is a form of ultimate self-care, especially during challenging or intense times.
